Hello AAOE Members!

I’m excited to serve as the AAOE President and am looking forward to a fantastic year ahead.

Throughout the next 11 months, I will share with you some of the plans and projects of your association. I want to help you stay informed and I encourage your engagement. AAOE is kind of like a hydroelectric plant. To be successful, it needs running water rather than still water. Running water provides the energy needed to produce the right results.

How is that like AAOE? Well, if we think of the AAOE as the hydroelectric plant and members as the water, we quickly realize that our organization gets its energy from active members.  Active members are the running water providing the energy needed for the right results.

Are you ready to be that running water for AAOE, providing our organization with the energy it needs?

Let me share a few ways to fit that in with any amount of time or budget: 

  •  Participate in the AAOE Benchmarking Survey. This survey helps individual practices compare themselves to others by size and geography to make better informed business decisions.
  • Serve as a volunteer on a committee.  It a great way to meet fellow members and really doesn’t take much time.
  • Participate on the listserv. Being a listserv observer has been invaluable to me in terms of skill building. We all have something to offer. I invite everyone to post questions and comments without fear of judgement.
  • Assist in the Advocacy efforts of the AAOE. Watch for legislative and regulatory updates, plus any calls to action when issues arise.
  • Read the weekly eNews. Stay current on association news and industry news that is aggregated specifically for our members. Look for it in your inbox every Tuesday afternoon.
  • Register for webinars (many are free) and participate in or purchase other educational programs by the AAOE.
  • Attend the Annual Conference. Learn, share, and connect with peers from across the country.
  • Read the Latest News blog. Not only will my regular updates be there, you’ll also see other timely posts on important news and industry information.

The AAOE Board of Directors and the many other committees of the organization continually strive to build the value of AAOE membership for everyone. Our goals are to: help members realize new ways to save money for their practices; provide reliable resources for them to benchmark their practice performance; expand our advocacy efforts; and offer them affordable educational programming for their own professional development, as well as staff-oriented training.

I promise to keep providing you with updates on the many initiatives we are undertaking and invite you to share your ideas about how the AAOE can better serve you.
